Default [ROM][PORT][WIP] Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview

Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview


== NOTE ==

The d2vzw port of Ubuntu Touch is very much a work in progress. Beyond that, it is also a Developer Preview. What this means for you... I'm not quite ready to release an image for starters. Once I do release it, there will likely be a number of things that only partially work, or don't work at all. Regardless, you will be flashing this ROM at your own risk. I am in no way responsible if it eats your cat, burns down your house, bricks your phone, or any other such nonsense.



== CURRENT STATUS ==

- Unreleased



== FAQs ==

Why post a thread if the port isn't done yet?
Two reasons... first off, it gives me a more imperative reason to actually finish it. Second, because it helps me determine who's interested, what kind of reception it will get, and (hopefully) find others who are able to help... I'm a bit out of my league here!


== Thanks ==

I have a feeling the list will get longer, but so far... Thanks to Mark and everyone over at Canonical for bringing us Ubuntu Touch in the first place, and thanks to everyone in the #ubuntu-touch channel on Freenode for their help so far... We're making progress!

Simply put, Ubuntu Touch is a Canonical-backed project to bring Ubuntu to mobile devices. They released the developer preview last week with official support for four devices... Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. As usual, the development community has been in overdrive and we already have unofficial builds for a dozen or so other devices. For more info on Ubuntu Touch, feel free to take a look around the official wiki.
